Cardi B’s latest single helped to popularize the saying “If it’s Up, then it’s stuck.” Lawyer Tyrone A. Blackburn, may know that all too well. Already representing more than a handful of alleged accusers pursuing criminal charges against rapper T.I. and his wife, Tiny, it looks like he has retained two more.
A report from Vulture gives a brief account of the two victims, who both remain nameless along with the other individual being represented by Blackburn. One of the alleged women hit the couple with various claims including being trafficked in three states.” At the time, the woman was 32-years of age as the tumultuous experience allegedly began in Nevada in 2010 and ended in Florida.
The second, who was 20 at the time, also bore claims that mirrored that of many of the other individuals. This woman, also nameless, claims she was attacked by Clifford Harris and one of his male friends in a hotel in Miami, Florida, in May of 2010.”
Blackburn claims to have examined the individuals medical records. In the meantime, a third alleged accuser has also contacted the lawyer for his assistance. Although he hasn’t officially begun to represent the individual, he is currently speaking to investigators from multiple jurisdictions, according to Vulture.
This comes on the heels of the news that Blackburn had begun the process of multiple women who are seeking justice against the couple. Blackburn is reportedly working on a story in conjunction with the National Enquirer to reveal more of the allegations against the couple. Details of the story are limited, but it is set to be a “spin story that refuses to identify any of the alleged victims.”
A source told The Jasmine Brand, “Blackburn repeatedly refusing to name the so-called ‘victims’ he represents, you have to wonder what he is hiding from the public.”
Steve Sadow, lawyer for the Harris couple, released another statement following their initial one further doubling down on their innocence. “The Harrisses continue to deny in the strongest possible terms these scurrilous and unsubstantiated accusations,” Sadow said to The Jasmine Brand. “We await lawyer Blackburn exposing his anonymous accusers to the light of day by revealing their names. Only then will we be in a position to confront their allegations with true facts.”
Sadow added, “By the lawyer choosing instead to misuse the media for his own publicity and hiding the identities of his clients from the public and us, he makes it impossible for us to do so now. We are confident that if the claims are thoroughly and fairly investigated, no charges will be brought.”
